  • My very own thoughts: typical perfect world developer mindset to assume that a big and complex problem is straightforwardly and fully solvable. I expect that if you actually try, you’ll find reality to be pricklishly difficult, full of nasty edge cases and little ratholes. Testing is a messy problemspace; that’s why CPANPLUS is still rough.

    However, I am open to being shown otherwise; if you think you really can solve this, go ahead and try. You’ll either find out that everyone else was right – or that they were all wrong. That's how progress is made. But prepare to go it alone until you have at least a working prototype.

    Show us the code.
